Caulfield double for Arrowfield-sired fillies

A pair of progessive 3YO fillies gave Arrowfield’s champion sires Redoute’s Choice & Flying Spur a handy double at Caulfield this afternoon.

Robert & Deborah Anderson‘s home-bred filly Bonaria (Redoute’s Choice-Decidity by Last Tycoon) opened the card with a decisive 3-length win over 1200 metres. Bonaria, a half-sister to Group winners Time Out and legally Bay, has now won or placed in eight of her 12 starts from the Pat Hyland stable.

The Redoute’s Choice/Last Tycoon cross has an strike rate of 25 winners from 29 runners, including 8 stakeswinners, with two of them successful at Group 1 level – Dariana and Master of Design.

Two races later Min River scored by almost 2 lengths over 2000 metres for the Frost family’s Pendant Equine Syndicate which paid $450,000 for the daughter of Flying Spur and Fulton (by Zabeel) at the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. Bred by Tony & Joe Bongiorno, the filly was sold under the Torryburn Stud banner, and is trained by Mick Price.

Min River and her Singapore Group-winning brother Flying Fulton are fine advertisements for the Flying Spur/Zabeel cross, which has produced 7 (15.9%) stakes performers from 44 named foals.

Now owned by Jonathan Munz’s GSA Bloodstock, Fulton is in foal to Redoute’s Choice who boasts 16.9% stakes performer/foals with daughters of the Arrowfield-bred Zabeel.
